Australia Travel Declaration

Travellers to Australia are asked to complete the Australia Travel Declaration before they travel.

Completing the Australia Travel Declaration means relevant health departments can contact you if someone you travelled with tests positive for COVID-19 and can determine any quarantine arrangements.   

We encourage you to complete the Australia Travel Declaration at least 72 hours before  you board your flight to Australia.

The Australia Travel Declaration is currently for:

  • travellers from New Zealand, including those who are transiting through Australia 
  • travellers on Australian Government facilitated flights. 

The Australia Travel Declaration will be available to all travellers at a later date.

Before you commence the declaration you will need to have the following information ready:

  • passport details
  • trip information
  • destination details
  • contact details.

You will need to create an account, which will allow you to manage your current and future declarations in one place. However, you cannot update your Australia Travel Declaration answers once it has been submitted.

Each declaration is for single use and only valid for one flight or journey for the traveller named on the declaration.

Each adult should complete their own declaration. However, parents should complete a declaration for any child under 15 years of age.

If you are transiting through Australia, you need to complete the Australia Travel Declaration.  

You do not have to pay for an Australia Travel Declaration — it is free.

Once you’ve completed the Australia Travel Declaration, you will receive an email with details you can show (either electronically or printed) before you board your flight and on arrival in Australia.

If you do not complete the declaration you may not be able to board your flight, or you may experience delays when you arrive in Australia.

The Department has authorised a third party to collect the Australia Travel Declaration information on its behalf. You will be redirected from this page to an external Australia Travel Declaration page. Once you’ve submitted your declaration, you will receive your confirmation email from 'AU- Health Aero no-reply@health.aero'

Arrival in Australia

Green and red zones have been created at airports in Australia to ensure the separation of passengers arriving on ‘quarantine-free’ flights, from other passengers who are required to enter 14 days mandatory quarantine.

If you travel on a quarantine-free flight, you will be guided through the green zone to complete all border clearance processes in the airport of arrival in Australia.  

For more information for travellers arriving in the green and red travel zone see the Department of Health website.
